While Venezuela continues to harass Guyana for the Essequibo territory, recently photographed boundary markers serve as clear evidence that the Essequibo belongs to Guyana. The photos below, taken by Guyanese citizen Thorne Arthur in April 2023, show the boundary markers between Guyana and Venezuela at Korosima, Region 1, Guyana, South America.
After a dispute between the Spanish and British Colonial powers, the Paris Award of 1899 settled it in favor of then British Guiana. These boundary markers at Region 1 were erected in 1901, two years after the 1899 award.
From antique stamps to boundary markers, the evidence that Essequibo is, was, and will always belong to Guyana is overwhelming. The Essequibo has always been administered by Guyana, and the Venezuelan claim is nothing short of desperation and bullyism.
